A Message From Ms. Loy, Principal
September 2, 2016
Dear Hacienda Families,
Thanks to all of you who attended our Back to School Night! We had such a terrific turnout, and I love it when I see so many smiling faces at our school. Every classroom I visited was packed with parents enthusiastically listening as teachers explained about what students will be learning, what field trips they may take, and what curriculum they will use for instruction.
This past week we had a short “rules” assembly. Here are some of the important guidelines that we talked about:
• Be safe-keep hands and feet to yourself.
• Games such as tag, any running, and games involving kicking the ball should only be played on the grass.
• We always walk on the blacktop, never run.
• When the bell rings, take a knee (or squat).
• Eat snacks at recess sitting down at a bench or a table.
• Use kind words, and play fair
• Never hurt anyone on the inside or the outside.
HIPS is in the process of our membership drive. Every year, parents and families make generous contributions that support art, music, science, and technology. I encourage all of you to join HIPS and contribute what you are able (no donation is too small). Thank you for your support! The membership drive will run through September 24th.
California state SBAC assessment results are in, and Hacienda did quite well! Please join me for the next Principal’s Coffee on September 13th, at both 9:00am and 6:00pm, to hear about how our 3rd through 5th grade students performed in both math and language arts.
Our newest staff members Galaxy Smith (Science), Ty Young (4th), Marilyn Burgess (K), Maggie McFarlan (K), Jennifer Stanley (RSP), and Elida Alvarez (Intervention), are settling in nicely, and getting to know our students and our school. We welcome them, and are so pleased that they have joined our community.
Well, folks, Fall is just around the corner, and before you know it, Fall Festival and Halloween will be here. The weather already seems to be getting colder, and the air is feeling pretty brisk. We are off to a great start for another wonderful year at Hacienda. ☺

2016-17 School Year
Headphones for Each Student
Beginning in the 2016-17 school year we are asking that each student bring one headphone (or ear bud) set for use with computers. (Please put it in a ziplock bag labeled with child’s name, teacher’s name, classroom #.) The set you provide for your child is for their school use, and it will be sent home at the end of the year. Headphone scholarships will be available on a request basis. More information to come in August.
